Let’s Make DIY Marbleized Ornaments. Christmas is my favorite time of the year, but for so many good reasons we all get so busy that we forget to enjoy family time and create new memories. This is one project that everyone can do together. Toddlers, teens and all the rest that are young at heart. The best part of all, is that it only takes a few minutes to create these wonderful marbleized masterpieces.

Materials for ornaments

Start by removing the  silver clamp on the top and set aside. Simply pour your choice of colors, cover the top with a paper towel and shake the paint around. You can get so many different looks by rolling the ornament very slowly in your hand, or tapping it and watch the paint splatter. Because you really cannot control the outcome they all take on a look of their own. Let no one say I’m not creative. This is one anyone can do and the outcome is beautiful.

But don’t stop there you can make these great ornaments for other occasions as well. Or create color coordinated ornaments in a 2 inch size and attach them to lighting strands for patio lights.
